Accusing top Tamil actor Rajnikanth of having "a hue of saffron in his politics", Ace actor Kamal Haasan Sunday said that his politic would certainly not be "saffron".
"They may be seniors to me in cinema".
Kamal Haasan made an imposing figure wearing the traditional Tamil attire of "Veshti" at the prestigious Harvard University and his speech spelled out clearly his vision for the state in his journey as a politician which begins from the 21st of February.
He boarded a Metropolitan Transport Corporation (MTC) bus at Alandur and travelled up to Pallavaram, a distance of nearly 10 kilometres.
Rajnikanth, posed the question of an alliance, had always maintained that he would take that decision after the political establishments of both actors take shape.
He, however, ruled out a post-poll alliance.
Actor-turned-politician Kamal Hassan recently announced that he will be adopting a village in every district of Tail Nadu.
"The reason I have started a new political party itself shows that I want to walk with the people, not the politicians", he said.
"Demanding good governance is my right and no government need take umbrage", Mr Haasan said.
Earlier, in his key note address, Hasaan rued that there is status quo and mediocrity in Tamil Nadu.
The state is experiencing a policy paralysis and there is no new imagination, the actor said adding that the bar has been lowered in every aspect "from education and skilling to healthcare to social justice to creating employment".
Confident of raising funds for the elections, Haasan called upon the Tamil community across the world to come up with ideas.
The entry of the two top Tamil film stars comes against the backdrop of a perceived vacuum in Tamil Nadu politics after former chief minister J Jayalalithaa's death in 2016 and the ill-health of DMK chief M Karunanidhi for over a year following which he was inactive in politics. "I do not know about jihad, but love would triumph hate". "I truly believe that a strong Tamil Nadu augurs well for a strong India", he said.
Talking about a possible alliance with Kamal Haasan, south Indian film superstar Rajinikanth had avoided a direct answer on Thursday saying, "Only time will answer this question".
